What is MetaMask Portfolio?

MetaMask Portfolio is a dapp built by our friends at MetaMask that allows you to buy, sell, swap, stake, and manage your cryptoassets, among other features. The Buy feature is one of these functions, and is the same service available through MetaMask.

tip

If you already have tokens on another network, you can follow the instructions here to bridge them to Linea.

Linea purchases in MetaMask Portfolio's Buy feature are available worldwide.

Steps to buy tokens on Linea

  1. Navigate to portfolio.metamask.io, and connect the account to which you want your purchased tokens to be delivered.
  2. If you're on a mobile device, select 'Buy' from the hamburger icon menu located in the top left of the screen; on desktop, select the 'Buy' tab on the left.
  3. Now you'll see the Buy interface. If you've never used it before, you'll first need to select your region. This information is required because availability of payment methods and providers vary based on your bank's location.
  4. Set the payment method. Again, if you've used Buy before on your current device, your previous choice should be loaded by default.
  5. Select a token. The token selection menu also allows you to switch networks; it's here where you need to locate and select Linea from the networks list.
  6. Now you'll see the tokens available to buy on Linea. Pick the one you want to buy, then input the amount on the main screen once the tokens menu is gone.
  7. You'll instantly see one or more quotes on the right, if you're on a desktop browser. On mobile devices, hit 'Get Quotes' to see them.
  8. Pick a quote by clicking on it.

Selecting a quote redirects you to the provider's site to complete the transaction. You may need to complete KYC ("Know Your Customer"; essentially, identifying yourself) with the provider.

After you've completed the steps with the provider, you'll be routed back to MetaMask Portfolio. Timescales for receiving your funds will vary based on the provider and token route.
